Football Attic: Rewind - Episode 7

Hello again, listeners - it's time for another deep dive into the calming waters of football nostalgia in the form of The Football Attic: Rewind - episode 7!

On this occasion, we've got for you the most recent batch of TV football we've covered so far, and it's from the very first season of the FA Premier League. Yes, we're looking back at 20th March 1993, Des Lynam and Match of the Day...

In this podcast, we remind ourselves of a time when Man United were only just remembering how to be the best team in England again. There's Cantona and Giggs, but both are having trouble finding the net at this point, and as for Bryan Robson... well, he's been injured recently, but you knew that already, probably.

United are up against their rivals Man City, while elsewhere, Liverpool face their arch-enemies Everton. Why is John Barnes warming up with a four-year-old? Why is Graeme Souness Britain's angriest man? And why does Clive Tyldesley think attendances will never go beyond 44,000 ever again?

All these questions are answered, plus we remember the ridiculous excitement generated by Nicam Stereo TV's, ponder for a moment on Bruce Forsyth's short career as a cartoon narrator and find out why Rich spent his days at university writing about BDSM. It's the podcast that truly has everything you could ever want!

Watch along with our featured episode of Match of the Day here, and don't forget to drop us a line if you want to tell us about anything featured in this podcast. Enjoy.
